Pick-up truck takes on motorcycle wall of death at Thai fair

A pick-up truck tackled an infamous motorcycle 'wall of death' at a county fair in Samut Prakan, Thailand earlier this month (November 3).

The carnival act began with a motorbike rider whizzing round while reaching the top of the 20ft high wall, before letting go of the handlebars and waving his hands.

After several rotations, a pickup driver took up the gauntlet and climbed into the illuminated orange pick-up truck and revved the engine, climbing the wall and coming within inches of spectators around the top of the wall.

The driver was leaning out of the window the whole time and even did a couple of laps while blindfolded.
